Bringing your own brand, culture, and experience into the digital platform is crucial for creating and delivering a new and relevant guest experience.

Confirmation email

The branded confirmation email is a personalized and beautifully designed email your guests can receive immediately after they book one of your properties.

The difference between Duve confirmation email from the ones the guests receives from the different OTAs, is that this is YOUR company’s email. That means this is where you start engaging personally with YOUR guests. Sending more information about your company, check-in and check-out, social media links, and get them excited about their stay and let them feel they booked in the right place.

Communication Hub & Auto-messages

The Communication Hub is the guest engagement control center where hoteliers and property managers can view, automate, manage and customize all guest communication and conversations.

The Communication hub is also an Omnichannel that centralized all different kind of guest communication into one interface – Emails, Chat, SMS and WhatsApp. It also supports real time translation to and from your guests!

Here you can broadcast messaged to multiple guests at once, for example to make announcements or updates using smart filters, and add automatic messages to be sent to your guests with many smart conditions (for example guests that didn’t complete the online check-in, guests that left more than 4.5 stars review, etc’).

Branded Guest App

Engage with your guests from the moment the booking is confirmed, offering them access to information, recommendations, upsells, and more in your own branded guest app!

Your branded guest app is a web-app, so there is no need for the guests to download any app (which lowers the usage by dozens of percentages). It is a private link created for every reservation that your guest receives through the email and SMS of WhatsApp usually after completing the online-check-in, and is accessible to them in their own language until the check-out.

The branded guest app also includes a personal area with the guests’ reservation info as well as chat, map view with local recommendation and attractions, Wifi details, door lock (if in use), house manual and with Duve advanced CMS (content management system) you can add everything you wish for your guests  to have included Videos, Images, PDF’s, Links and Maps.
